Flashback: Canada's Bureaucrats monitor online forums

The next time you post an opinion in an online forum or a Facebook group message board, don't be surprised if you get a rebuttal from a federal employee.

The government is looking for ways to monitor online chatter about political issues and correct what it perceives as misinformation.

The move started recently with a pilot project on the East Coast seal hunt. A Toronto-based company called Social Media Group has been hired to help counter some information put forward by the anti-sealing movement.

The Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade has paid the firm $75,000 "to monitor social activity and help identify … areas where misinformation is being presented and repeated as fact," Simone MacAndrew, a department spokesperson, said in an email.

Monsanto Wants 14-Year Reuters Veteran Reporter Fired for Talking About GMO Dangers

On Friday, Baltimore, Maryland city officials enacted a law that will allow children under the age of 14 caught outside during the hours of 9:00 pm through 6:00 am to be detained and held by police until a parent or guardian can claim them.

Though authorities said that the children would not be handcuffed or put under arrest, parents of frequently unaccompanied children will be forced to pay a fine of up to $500. In order to house the youth, city officials have retooled two formerly-shuttered recreational centers to be kept open at night and staffed by police officers.

FLASHBACK - US Vaccines Caused'Spanish Flu'

"The 1918 'Spanish Flu' started in American military Camp Funston, Fort Riley, USA amongst troops making ready for W.W.I - taking on board vaccinations, recruit training and all. It eventually killed about 40,000,000 people worldwide. That flu strain only appeared briefly once again, according to the US Atlanta CDC. This was in 1976 and again it struck at the US army camp Fort Dix, USA, amongst recently vaccinated troops (and no one else EVER); Fort Dix is known to have been a vaccine trial centre. Was the world's greatest 'influenza' scourge another well-hidden vaccine disaster?"---John P Heptonstall

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The 1918 flu pandemic was proclaimed the "Spanish Flu" even though it clearly did not originate in Spain. This suggests that even back then, something was being covered up.

This is worth recalling now that multiple sources have identified the Kenema bioweapons lab in Sierra Leone, operated by Fort Detrick and biologists from Tulane University (but now closed and under investigation by the Sierra Leone government), as the starting point for the current Ebola outbreak and that an Ebola vaccine being tested either accidentally or deliberately triggered the disease.

Ebola: joint bio and psych warfare assault from George Soros and Bill & Melinda Gates

Kenema Government Hospital in Sierra Leone, which has been at the eye of the Ebola storm, houses a US biosecurity level 2 bioweapons research lab with links to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and Soros Foundation. There, US biodefence scientists have been working on viral fevers such as Ebola for decades.

(Patents applied for here).

The locals certainly believe that Kenema Lab in Sierra Leone is the cause of the outbreak of Ebola there. Bloomberg reports how locals threw stones at the hospital and the police station, amidst fears that health workers were using Ebola as a ruse to kill people and collect body parts.

The fears were sparked by a ‘rumour’ apparently started by a nurse who worked there, who the lab quickly insisted was mentally ill. This is a common and classic tactic, to discredit the whistleblower. You have to wonder how a mentally ill person was considered fit to work in such a sensitive and dangerous facility. But of course, she probably was completely sane, and just fearless enough to tell the truth.

Dr. Mads Gilbert: I know you applaud for Gaza. I know you applaud for those who are there, the heroes of Gaza. This will be no easy appeal to make, because I am now overcome by the mildness, the warmth, the safety, the absence of bombs, jets, blood and death. And then all that we’ve had to keep inside comes to the surface – so forgive me if sometimes I break.

97 Year-Old Woman Denied The Right To Vote Because Of Voter ID

Last Tuesday, Beth Hiller, a 97 year-old nursing home resident from Topeka, Kansas, boarded a shuttle along with several other residents of the nursing home’s health care unit. It was a difficult process for many of the residents, who had limited mobility and depended on wheelchairs or walkers in order to move around. Yet Hiller and her fellow residents also boarded that shuttle intending to exercise one of their most important rights as citizens — the shuttle was there to take them to a nearby polling place so that they could vote in a primary election.

250,000 Gazans have no home following Israeli attacks

At least 250,000 Palestinians in the Gaza Strip have no home to return to as the Israeli regime’s relentless military attacks have wreaked major destruction in the enclave, Press TV reports.

Some 80 families perished in the Israel war on Gaza, which began on July 8. The aggression has so far claimed the lives of some 1,940 Palestinians, including 470 children. Nearly 10,000 others have been injured in the military aggression.

“Heavy bombing targeted our incomplete house at night so we took refuge in the lower floor of the building when the F16 jets joined the tanks in bombing our house. We decided to flee to the nearby town of Beit Hanoun. We saw refugees inside Beit Hanoun hospital, but it was shelled and people were killed,” Shadi Sahwheel, a displaced Gaza resident, told Press TV.

Obama: Netanyahu “Too Strong” to Make Peace

In order for peace to ever occur between Israel and the Palestinians, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu needs to be weakened, United States President Barack Obama asserted.

In an interview with the New York Times’ Thomas L. Friedman, the president said that Netanyahu was “too strong” and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas [Abu Mazen] was “too weak.”

According to Obama, in order for Netanyhau to come to the negotiating table and make concessions, the prime minister needs to feel more pressure from his cabinet and Israelis.

The president expressed his frustration over Abbas’s lack of popular support by the Palestinian people, unlike Netanyahu who, during this time of crisis and conflict, is strongly supported by most Israelis.

Modi Rewrites India’s Tryst with Destiny (II)

From the American viewpoint, India’s SCO (Shanghai Cooperation Organization) membership literally caps the trajectory of US-Indian strategic partnership.The message is clear: India is unavailable as a ‘counterweight’ against China or as a silent partner to ‘isolate’ Russia.

The heart of the matter is that the SCO has disallowed a security vacuum appearing in Central Asia, which the NATO could have used as an alibi to step in. Put differently, so long as the SCO is around, NATO’s eastward expansion beyond the Caucasus runs into formidable obstacles.

That is to say, SCO challenges the US strategy to project the NATO as the global security organization that bypasses the United Nations as the provider of security. This is precisely why the US has opposed the SCO and did all it could to debunk the grouping.

Israeli Genocide and its Willing Accomplices

Israel’s total war against Gaza has provoked condemnation from millions of people around the world, greater outrage at their crimes against humanity, and calls for an international war crimes tribunal. If such a tribunal were to be convoked, the question arises of how wide the net should be cast – where to draw the line between leaders, soldiers, masses and complicit overseas supporters, all implicated to one degree or another? How many ‘willing accomplices’ to mass murder should be investigated and tried?

Christopher Bollyn - "The Downing of MH17 - Is Israel Involved?"

Furthermore, Yaron Mofaz, a relative of Shaul Mofaz, former chief of staff of the Israeli military, oddly took a photograph of the ill-fated Malaysian plane at the airport in Amsterdam shortly before it was shot down, which he then provided to Reuters.

Yaron Mofaz also happens to be a director of a Mofaz family company that works closely with a company in Florida that owns a former Malaysia Airlines airliner, virtually identical to the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 and MH17.

This Malaysian airliner, it just so happens, was sent to Israel in late 2013 where it was parked in a hangar in Tel Aviv. For these and other reasons it is logical that we consider the possibility that the shooting down of MH17 was an Israeli false-flag operation with a twist.

Therefore, the real question is not whether Israel was involved, but to what degree was Israel involved in the atrocity? -

What a renowned poet wrote about awakening humanity

*hyperlinks live at source*
Rainer Rilke (1875-1926) was a poignant poet; still among the best-selling in the US. Included in his work are ten letters written to an aspiring poet, a section of which seems to speak to activists today in our condition of being relatively few with challenges to awaken humanity for:

peace over lie-begat unlawful Wars of Aggression,
money rather than debt and mathematically guaranteed debt-slavery,
Facts about our most important stories rather than Orwellian corporate media lies (with much distraction).
Recognition of 100 or so game-changing areas, such as Dr. King being assassinated by the US government as proven in the family civil trial, it’s cheaper to provide housing than endure homelessness, GMO non-foods, cancer cures, chemtrails, vaccines being toxic, fluoride in water also toxic, and, well, about 100 more.

Depressed about the world? Awesome! Stages of being awake, catalyzing transformation

*hyperlinks live at source*
Depression can be ontologically (way of being) embraced as a natural expression of empathy; a rational response to the present conditions of psychopathic Earth “leadership.” Choosing to embrace rather than resist so-called “depressed” thoughts and feelings opens a pathway to possible proactive thoughts, speech, and actions to transform present conditions to unpredictable and even unimaginable virtues.

That is, if a human being is going to participate in the transformation of present Earth conditions, then it seems normal for most people to have reactions that may include shock, horror, denial, sadness, fear, rage, depression, and anxiety in becoming responsible (response-able) to Earth conditions when factually embraced. This is a temporary stage that those of us with experience observe often, and almost all of us have gone through ourselves.

Australian Jewish lobby got columnist fired over a Gaza cartoon

Australian Jewish groups had slammed the newspaper over Carlton’s July 26 column in which he accused the Zionist entity of “waging its own war of terror on the entire Gaza population”. The column was accompanied by a cartoon (shown above), which was widely condemned as “anti-Jew” by leaders of country’s organized Jewry which also threatened to take legal action against the newspaper under country’s “Hate Law”.

Initially, the newspaper defended the cartoon, explaining that Le Lievre’s drawing was inspired by “news photographs of Israeli Jews seated in chairs and lounges, observing the Israeli shelling of Gaza.”

But then, as expected, the Jewish Lobby invoked the “Six Million Died” smoking gun to demonize the newspaper. The Australian Jewish News wrote: “Not only were we treated to baseless accusations of ‘genocide’ and ‘ethnic cleansing’ on Israel’s part, but then there was a subtle shift. These were crimes being committed by ‘a people with a proud liberal tradition of scholarship and culture, who hold the Warsaw Ghetto and the six million dead of the Holocaust at the centre of their race memory.’

Washington’s Diabolical Agenda in Iraq: US Pledges “Humanitarian Airstrikes” against US Sponsored IS Terrorists

The US has pledged assistance for victims of and even possible “airstrikes” against terrorists who have surrounded and threaten to eradicate thousands of religious minorities in Iraq. However, the terrorists themselves are a product of US foreign policy in the Middle East and North Africa, and instrumental in achieving Western objectives across the region. Punitive strikes and aid to the victims of what is essentially a Western mercenary army is part of maintaining plausible deniability.

Systematically Reconstructing the Shoot-Down of the Malaysian Airliner: The Guilt Is Clear and Damning

Only idiots would trust Britain to interpret these black boxes to determine what and who brought down that plane. But, fortunately, the physical evidence lying on the ground at the site in Ukraine was photographed very quickly by locals there and uploaded to the Internet sometimes before any fighters and any governments were able to tamper with anything; and there happened to be one modest-looking item found at the site that tells a remarkably complete and entirely credible and convincing account of how this plane came down.

It tells that the Ukrainian Government itself did this airliner-downing, with bullets, not with shrapnel. You’ll see the evidence laid out before you here; you won’t need to rely upon the British Government to tell you how this event happened. The evidence will tell you that.

California Man Gets 35 Years in Prison for Sexually Abusing Niece

A former pharmacy technician who sexually abused his 5-year-old niece and created a video montage of explicit images of the child will spend the next 35 years in prison, a San Diego judge ruled Friday.

Damian Clemente Mora, 31, of El Centro, Calif., pleaded guilty in March to two counts of sexual exploitation of a child.

According to sentencing documents, investigators discovered that Mora had photographed and videotaped his niece 512 times in sexually explicit positions and stored the images on his digital devices, including his computer, camera, table and a thumb drive.

The abuse happened over a two-year period.

Investigators said Mora compiled the hundreds of images into a disturbing eight-minute video montage that included upbeat music and an off-color subtitle that read, “Starring: A Loving Uncle.”

Prosecutors said Mora boasted about the photos “to other pedophiles and cavalierly wrote about finding additional victims.”

Malaysia wants the ‘missing’ Ukrainian ATC tapes

UKRAINE has denied that its State Security Service (SBU) had seized the air-to-ground transmission tapes between its air traffic controllers and Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 on the day the jetliner was shot down.

Its ambassador to Malaysia Ihor Humennyi, in an exclusive interview with the New Straits Times, said that reports alleging that the SBU had seized the recordings had not been independently verified or confirmed by Kiev.

“There is no proof or any evidence that the tapes were confiscated by the SBU.

“I only read this in the newspapers.”

Almost immediately after the shootdown, several news agencies, including the British Broadcasting Corporation, carried reports saying that Ukraine’s SBU security service had confiscated recordings of conversations between Ukrainian air traffic control officers and the crew of the doomed airliner.

The political dimensions of the current conflict in Iraq

Thus, it is clear that on one side there is the United States, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, other Arabian monarchies and Turkey pressing for the removal of al-Maliki and the creation of a coalition government that would be loyal to the West and the Gulf Coast States; on the other side there is Russia, China, Iran, Syria (although the second is not particularly active) who understood the inherent dangers in the spread of Islamic radicalism and terrorism in the Middle East.

In recent days, the offensive thrust of ISIS has lost momentum. The tactic of “Blitzkrieg” used by the Islamists with the possible fall of Baghdad didn’t succeed. But almost every day they manage to capture at least something, but at the same time, in some places they have been in retreat. In general, the militants halted their assault on Baghdad, focusing instead on oil and gas infrastructure.

$1.2 Million Medical Bill Sent to Family…Because of Obamacare Typo

A Las Vegas family has been slammed with nearly $1.2 million in medical bills due to an Obamacare exchange issue.

In October, Kynell and Amber Smith bought insurance from Anthem Blue Cross through Nevada Health Link, their state’s exchange. They made two premium payments in January. Initially, their monthly premium was set at $1,575. Nevada Health Link contacted the Smiths in March to notify them that they were overpaying and needed a new policy. That reduced their premium to $1,296.

US/UK/Israel ‘Empire’ same as Roman Empire: They make a desert and call it peace

*hyperlinks live at source*
Let’s examine connections between the empires of Rome and modern US/UK/Israel to discover possible solutions to restore republic from empire in our world of the present.

Roman Empire: History teaches that the Roman Republic devolved into psychopathic dictatorial empire; characterized by oligarchic families competing among themselves for power and wealth within vicious inner-circles.

This occurred while proclaiming to the public that their government still upheld the highest ideals of their Republic, and proclaiming expanding empire was only and always in “self-defense.”

Emperor Domitian’s assassination in 96 AD (among ~22 murdered emperors), allowed historian Tacitus to write The Agricola, a biographical text of his father-in-law contrasting claimed virtue of Roman military and citizenry with the emperor’s utterly corrupt despotism.

Pushing Ukraine to the Brink

by MIKE WHITNEY
“The unipolar world model has failed. People everywhere have shown their desire to choose their own destiny, preserve their own cultural identity, and oppose the West’s attempts at military, financial, political and ideological domination.”
- Vladimir Putin

Washington’s policy in Ukraine is such a mess, it really makes one wonder about the competence of the people who come up with these wacko ideas. It’s crazy.

Europe and Russia are a perfect fit. Europe needs gas to heat its homes and run its machinery. Russia has gas to sell and needs the money to strengthen its economy. It’s a win-win situation. What Europe and Russia don’t need is the United States. In fact, the US is the problem. As long as US meddling persists, there’s going to be social unrest, division, and war. It’s that simple.

Israel Has Morally Compromised its Supporters

Israel and the West are complicit in mass murder in Gaza. Should they suffer the same fate as Gazans,they won't have any moral recourse.

by Henry Makow PhD.

As friction with Russia threatens to escalate, this isn't a good time for Zionists to embrace the principle of collective punishment and to relinquish their moral authority.

Yet this is exactly what has happened to those who have endorsed Israel's abominable and disproportionate assault on Gaza which has killed 1900 people, 70% of whom were civilians, including 415 children.

Why have Israel's actions been so egregious, given the lack of genuine provocation?

More than 10,000 Gazans have been injured. 373,000 children require psychological support. 500,000 Palestinians have been displaced with 187,000 still living in U.N. emergency shelters. An estimated 10,000 homes have been completely destroyed, and 30,000 homes partially destroyed.

Malaysian press charges Ukraine government shot down MH 17

Well the Malaysians have spoken out! Ukraine shot down their airliner and murdered
hundreds of people in an attempt to start WW3!

By Alex Lantier
9 August 2014

A Thursday article in the New Straits Times, Malaysia’s flagship English-language newspaper, charged the US- and European-backed Ukrainian regime in Kiev with shooting down Malaysian Airlines flight MH 17 in east Ukraine last month. Given the tightly controlled character of the Malaysian media, it appears that the accusation that Kiev shot down MH17 has the imprimatur of the Malaysian state.

Organized Community Defense Is America’s Last Hope

Not long ago, I felt compelled to address the idea of self defense as a moral imperative in an article titled “Violence In The Face Of Tyranny Is Often Necessary.” My intention was to perhaps undo some of the propaganda conditioning that Americans have suffered over the decades that has taught them that “all” forms of violent action are “immoral”, including the defense of one’s person, one’s property, and one’s freedom.

The recent uprising at Bundy Ranch in Bunkerville, Nev., confirmed my predictions that many Americans are tired of playing by rules chartered by the establishment and are ready to take measures outside of the boundaries set by the system. The reality is that change will never come without consequence and cost, and when faced with an entrenched tyranny, if the citizenry cannot present the threat of physical consequence to their oppressors, the oppressors have no motivation to relinquish power.

The West on the wrong path (says publisher of Germany’s leading financial newspaper Handelsblatt)

Paul Craig Roberts sees the publishing of this article by Gabor Steingart, publisher of Germany’s financial newspaper Handelsblatt, as a hopeful sign that EU residents are awakening to the realization that they are being railroaded by their pusillanimous politicians into another unnecessary war.

If the West had judged the then US government which marched into Iraq without a resolution by the UN and without proof of the existence of “WMDs“ by the same standards as today Putin, then George W. Bush would have immediately been banned from entering the EU. The foreign investments of Warren Buffett should have been frozen, the export of vehicles of the brands GM, Ford, and Chrysler banned.

The American tendency to verbal and then also military escalation, the isolation, demonization, and attacking of enemies has not proven effective. The last successful major military action the US conducted was the Normandy landing. Everything else – Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan – was a clear failure. Moving NATO units towards the Polish border and thinking about arming Ukraine is a continuation of a lack of diplomacy by the military means.

Further Evidence that Obama Is a Republican

Elect me to fight them!”

Tell your Democratic Representative in Congress: Do it or else! Or else the Democratic Party dies and America will continue to be ruled, at the Presidential level, only by two conservative Parties.

Polls show that Obama has moved not only American politics but American public opinion to the right, except on "social" issues, which aren't critically important for the aristocracy anyway.
